I had walked into the local climbing shop to pick up a pair of rock shoes I had ordered. This was the second pair in 2 months. I was tired of being in pain and was determined to find a shoe that I could climb in all day without my feet being in excruciating pain while climbing and for hours afterwards. I pulled on my new "Frenzy's" and walked over to the climbing wall and traversed on some small footholds. I dropped off the wall and joined in a conversation about a route on one of the local mountains. After 20 minutes or so, I said goodbye to all the guys in the shop and proceeded to walk out.. with my Frenzy's on!
I realized I was still wearing my rock shoes only after I had already left the store. When I returned to retrieve the street shoes I had left behind, I was greeted with laughter and the owner commenting "that comfortable huh?”
He was absolutely right. Finally after years of searching, trying, buying, and giving away shoes that had only been used a few times, I found a pair of climbing shoes that are every bit as comfortable as my running shoes. I proved this on the last 2 climbs, never once having to loosen, or take them off to give my feet relief. I am not even conscious of them anymore. Oh and.. they stick like glue too!!
Whoever said that climbing shoes have to hurt if they fit right, never tried a pair of Frenzy's
